  • Very informative, quite a lot to watch and study. Good place to spend at least one hour learning more about Cheng Ho' s voyages and adventures. Recommended for fans of history.
  • Worth visiting. The place is old, but it gives very detail explanations of Cheng Ho's voyage history.
  • Very informative museum, especially if you are into SEA/Chinese history. I easily spent 2 hours here. The RM10 entrance fee was well worth it!
  • Brace yourself, history lovers. Another great museum has been discovered in Melaka. Drop by the museum if you are in Melaka later.
  • Well, now I know more about where I came from I guess.

Where to stay in Melaka

Luxury hotels in opulent buildings frequently sit right alongside budget accommodations in Melaka. Side streets and alleyways offer secluded rooms in attractive buildings that are often as grandiose as regal hotels. For budget lodgings, look for the main arterial roads, which lack the charm of the rest of the town, but provide comfortable rooms at reduced rates.
